Used to be quite fun to play as a premium member. You could acquire marks and upgrade your gear if you didn't mnd a bit of grinding. Now, however, all items are blocked by "CR levels" so you can't run through the early items for only a few marks if you're too high.

Plus, as a "free player" you can't get over Combact rating 84. I had a character before all these updates that I had up at CR102, and now if I play him, he will never receive Marks. It's taken the fun out of the game in my opinion.

The game is boring is very boring now. I been on it since beta times alot stuff has change "Bad changes" Once you hit lvl 30 it gets boring. You got do the same missions over and over to get marks to buy gear to raise your cr up. You keep doing it over like I said before. If you're a pvper, the devs ruined on here you get 1 shot alot and low lvls can kill you if your max gear. Pvp phase is dead so no luck there. Everyone hangs at the Watchtower/Hall of Doom spending hours siting at a wall, ledge, and etc. It's more of a pve game.

Bad things about it: 1st Devs dont listen to the community and also money ♥♥♥♥♥s
2nd. They block you or ban you if you speak the truth.
3rd. Pvp is ruined and Pve is really boring.
4th. It's mostly a Pay To Win game..
5th. The weapons and powers are broken.
6th. Lots of speed hackers on here.

Good things about it: 1st The styles are nice.
2nd. The combat is really good.

That's all I can say. You can try the game if ya want. But dont spend money it's not worth it. You can look on they're Youtube vids that they dont play or care about the games. The Youtubers are the ones who bring people here and they dont get pay for it. Hate to see a really good game turns out really bad. I will always love this game but I wont go back it's not worth.
